Shia LaBeouf Will Have Unsimulated Sex in Lars von Trier’s NYMPHOMANIAC

To say Shia LaBeouf has come a long way since his days as an adorable goofball on The Disney Channel’s Even Stevens is a bit of an understatement.  After working in big budget fare with directors like Steven Spielberg and Michael Bay, LaBeouf has now sworn off franchise films for good.  He’s perfectly content in the indie/dramatic world, and if you thought he’d gone a little far with his recent full-frontal appearance in a Sigur Ros music video, wait until you see him in Antichrist director Lars von Trier’s Nymphomaniac.

The outspoken director hasn’t shied away from talking about the explicit nature of Nymphomaniac, which follows the erotic events in the life of a woman (Charlotte Gainsbourg) from her youth to age 50.  LaBeouf will star alongside Stellan Skarsgard, and the actor recently revealed that von Trier has no plans to “simulate” the sex happening in the film.  He’s going for the real thing.  Hit the jump for more.

shia-labeouf-nymphomaniacSpeaking with MTV News for the upcoming period drama Lawless (which is great, by the way), LaBeouf—next to a slightly shocked Jessica Chastain—revealed that the film’s sex scenes will be done for real:

“It is what you think it is. There’s a disclaimer at the top of the script that basically says, we’re doing [the sex] for real. And anything that is ‘illegal’ will be shot in blurred images. But other than that, everything is happening.”

Like I said, a far cry from Louis Stevens.  Last we heard, production was set to begin this September.  Other rumored cast members include Willem Dafoe and Nicole Kidman, but it’ll be interesting to see who’s still game for the film after finding out about von Trier’s, um, unusual filming method.  We’ve embedded the video interview with LaBeouf below, and I highly suggest you take a look for pure entertainment value.  Chastain’s reaction is quite fun.
